Stable Prenucleation Calcium Carbonate Clusters
Calcium carbonate forms scales, geological deposits, biominerals, and ocean sediments. Huge amounts of carbon dioxide are retained as carbonate ions, and calcium ions represent a major contributionExpand
Mesocrystals: inorganic superstructures made by highly parallel crystallization and controlled alignment.
Controlled self-organization of nanoparticles can lead to new materials. The colloidal crystallization of non-spherical nanocrystals is a reaction channel in many crystallization reactions. WithExpand
Crystallization by particle attachment in synthetic, biogenic, and geologic environments
Growing crystals by attaching particles Crystals grow in a number a ways, including pathways involving the assembly of other particles and multi-ion complexes. De Yoreo et al. review the mountingExpand
Higher-order organization by mesoscale self-assembly and transformation of hybrid nanostructures.
The organization of nanostructures across extended length scales is a key challenge in the design of integrated materials with advanced functions. Current approaches tend to be based on physicalExpand

Penetration coefficients of commercially available and experimental composites intended to infiltrate enamel carious lesions.
OBJECTIVES Arresting of enamel lesions by infiltration with light curing composite resins might be a treatment alternative of future micro-invasive dentistry. So far only commercially availableExpand
Oriented attachment and mesocrystals: non-classical crystallization mechanisms based on nanoparticle assembly.
In this review, we highlight particle based crystallization pathways leading to single crystals via mesoscopic transformation. In contrast to the classical mechanism of atom/molecule mediated growthExpand
Pre-nucleation clusters as solute precursors in crystallisation.
Crystallisation is at the heart of various scientific disciplines, but still the understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying phase separation and the formation of the first solid particlesExpand
Resin infiltration of artificial enamel caries lesions with experimental light curing resins.
To prevent enamel lesions from further demineralization, a complete and homogeneous penetration of low-viscosity resins ('infiltrants') should be accomplished. With commercially available adhesives,Expand
A systematic examination of the morphogenesis of calcium carbonate in the presence of a double-hydrophilic block copolymer.
In this paper, a systematic study of the influence of various experimental parameters on the morphology and size of CaCO3 crystals after room-temperature crystallization from water in the presence ofExpand
